When is the best time to come to Ireland?

Border

Anytime is a good time to visit Ireland!

Spring

Ireland warms up in springtime. Days lengthen. Colour returns to the landscape with wildflowers and fruit blossom visible in hedgerows.

St Patrick's Day is the obvious festival highlight. But you'll find plenty of other exciting things to do in Ireland in springtime.

Our tour prices are reduced by 10% each March and April.

Summer

July and August are the traditional peak season summer months. But Ireland does not see the heatwaves and crowds common to continental Europe in summertime. You'll still find deserted beaches and off the beaten track gems in Ireland, even in midsummer!

You may be surprised by how much daylight there is in Ireland during summer. In mid-June along the Wild Atlantic Way, the sun doesn't set until 11pm!

Autumn

September is usually a warm and settled month. Hotels and flights often offer autumn/fall deals, lowering your costs.

Our tour prices are reduced by 10% each October.

Halloween is the Autumn festival highlight. Derry hosts the largest Halloween festival in Ireland.

Winter

Although we're quite far north, Ireland rarely experiences major winter snowfall. The temperature never drops far below zero, even in midwinter.

Christmas is a big deal in Ireland. The country shuts down for over a week. It's worth noting that flight prices into Ireland jump at this time. On the plus side, there's a major New Year's Eve festival in Dublin.
